The main event features a battle between top-ranked bantamweight contenders as No. 5 Marlon Vera (19-7) faces No. 8 Dominick Cruz (24-3). Surging contender Vera is coming in with a three-fight winning streak following a big win against Rob Font last April in his first main card assignment. He has the most finishes in Bantamweight division history with nine. San Diego native Cruz is a former two-time UFC title holder in the weight class and is seeking a chance to regain the belt.
In the co-main featherweight matchup, David Onama (10-1) seeks to become the first fighter to win three UFC fights in 2022 as he steps in for Zubaira Tukhugov in a clash with Nate Landwehr (15-4).
Brendan Fitzgerald will call the action, alongside former two-division champion and UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier. Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties. Victor Davilla and Santiago Ponzinibbio will provide all coverage in Spanish.
